Campground information Sitka, Alaska

Overview

North Beach Cabin is nestled just inside the forest fringe on the north beach of Shelikof Bay on Kruzof Island, 20 miles northwest of Sitka, Alaska. The A-frame cabin is available year-round, weather permitting, and was built in 1993 by volunteers from the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station in Sitka and by local volunteers. The Shelikof Cabin is located on the east shore of Shelikof Bay just south of the Shelikof River, about a mile from this cabin.

This is a remote site. The cabin can be accessed by boat, a 45-minute ride from Sitka to Mud Bay, followed by a 7.5 mile hike or off-highway vehicle ride on old logging roads. The cabin can also be reached by helicopter at lower tides.

Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring their own amenities.

Recreation

Beachcombing, photography, hiking, hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing and riding off-highway vehicles are popular activities at North Beach Cabin. Nearly 40 miles of old logging roads are open to hiking, mountain biking and off-highway vehicle riding. Fishing is fair for Dolly Varden trout, coho and pink salmon found in local streams.
